No surprise over college educated women

August 22nd, 2019 by Ken

The fact that there are now more women college graduates in the workforce, than men, should come as no surprise to those who have followed demographic trends for a while.

For the last decade, there have been more women in college than men. Women currently comprise 57 percent of all college students, and in some occupations – – law and medicine – – make up more than 60 percent of those enrolled.

The reason is very simple. Since the 1970’s, women have been encouraged and supported in their search for economic freedom and that comes through education. Women support groups in this effort abound across the country. In most cases, men are on their own.

The educational system from elementary school through college, is slanted towards women. Men are slowly being pushed aside.

Is this bad? Not really. Is it unfair? Perhaps, but then pay back is often unfair. Is it good for the country? Probably not. We need both genders educated and contributing. Women’s movement into college and into the work force is a fact of life. We just need to be aware of the fallout.
